Everyone else I get, but how does Mozart fit in with those whom are missing anatomy, or a senses ?
You know, Tony's finger tip problem might even be a bigger problem for a guitarist than Jerry's "bird less hand" .
In the Classical world ,Austrian pianist , Paul Wittgenstein, lost his right arm in WWI , and many composers wrote works for the left had for him (Ravel, Richard Stauss, Prokofiev etc .) Became more well know as a left handed pianist than he could have likly been with two !

Maybe because in Forman's film "Amadeus" there is a scene where he falls down in Vienna and gets up in Prague?

Trivia question - what is the first film Forman ever shot? Not commercially, but as a teen w/ his best friend writing the screen adaptation?

I guess general ill health, might have hobbled Wolfgang a little . I warn anyone to take 'Amedeus' with a grain of salt . It works as a film ( and the play), interesting theme , but a rather exaggerated view of the man .
As for Forman's first film , I have to defer to you cinema buffs out there .
